It is with immense feelings of sadness that reports the passing of Mrs. Mimi Chammah a”h.

Thousands of Yidden around the world had been davening for Miriam Chaya bas Bracha, but Hashem chose to take this beautiful flower so it can be next to His Kisei Hakavod.

Mimi gave birth to her third child, a baby girl, four months ago and immediately fell into a coma. Unfortunately, she never recovered. Her neshamah returned to its Creator this afternoon, plunging her family, her many friends, and so many admirers into mourning.

Mimi was a resident of Flatbush, Brooklyn, where she and her husband, Gaby, were raising their beautiful family.

She is a daughter of R’ Ariel and Mrs. Barbara Bensoussan. Mrs. Bensoussan is a talented writer whose literary creations grace the pages of Mishpacha Magazine.

Mimi hailed from a wonderful family, and she applied the ideals and values she learned from her parents into her own children, establishing a home of Torah and Kiddush Hashem.

Mimi ran a pre-school in Flatbush, where the children under her care were the beneficieries of her kindness and sensitivity. She truly cherished every child and showered them with love.

After she fell into a coma, Mimi was transferred to Kimball Medical Center in Lakewood, NJ, where she was under the care of Dr. Chuna Leibowitz.

Mimi is survived by her parents, R’ Ariel and Mrs. Barbara Bensoussan; her siblings, R’ Yosef Bensoussan, R’ Moshe Bensoussan, Mrs. Chana Naim, Mrs. Rochel Aziza Menachemov and Mrs. Esther Bacari; and her husband, R’ Gaby Chammah, and their three children, and many grieving friends.

The levaya will be held tomorrow at 10 a.m. at Magen David Congregation, located at 2021 67th Street, between 20th and 21st Avenues, in Brooklyn, NY.

Umacha Hashem dimah me’al kol ponim.

Yehi zichroh boruch.



  1. Daruch dayan Emes. Umuchah Hashem Dimah Mei Al Kol Panim. May we be reunited with Mimi very soon with the imminent arrival of Moshiach Tzidkeinu.
